Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Small Butter Crock attributed to Richard Remmey of Philadelphia.
Richard Remmey ran the family pottery in Philadelphia from the 1860's until the turn of the century (Phil Shaltenbrand, Big Ware Turners, pp. 8-10).
Dating to the 1860's, this beauty features an Uncommon Small Size, Tooled and Ridged Rim and Shoulder, and a Garland of 5 Leaves Around the Middle. Each leaf has 7 or 8 brushstrokes of strong cobalt. What a robust contrast! Measures 4" tall and 6 1/2' wide.
Good Condition. Two chips inside the rim (1/2", 3/4"), and smaller chips outside the rim (1/8" to 3/8"). A 1 1/4" hairline from the rim (closeup). No base chips, stains, or restoration. Slightly out of round in the making.
